EASTERN rugby zone official Samisoni Baikeitoga has maintained his prediction that it will reclaim the under-18 Deans Trophy this year.

After the Coke Zero Deans quarter-finals at the ANZ Stadium in Suva yesterday, Bai said his prediction would materialise after the finals in Lautoka.

"I told you that my prediction of the Eastern teams retaining the Deans will be true," he told Times Sport.

"Mark my word," the former Ratu Kadavulevu School teacher and age-group coach said.

"Just see the results and the performance of the Eastern teams during the quarter-finals."

The three secondary school giants, RKS, Queen Victoria School and Lelean Memorial School have all advanced into the semi-finals next weekend.

QVS edged Navuso 20-14 during its quarter-final match, LMS outclassed Marist Brothers High School 30-22 while RKS dethroned Suva Grammar School 48-17.

QVS plays LMS in the first semi-final while RKS takes on defending champions Ratu Navula College.

Baikeitoga said the coveted secondary school trophy would return to its home in the East.

"The Deans is coming home back to the East and see my words will come true after the finals."

The Deans semi-finals will be played in Suva on Saturday.
